KICKSTATER Update #5: “The Little Engine That Could®!”

Perhaps this update gets its name from the fact that I have an almost 2 year old and inspiration is found in the strangest places, but this project is becoming The Little Engine That Could®!

We are at $1,691 pledged which is 33% funded with a
total
of 58 backers and 10 days to go!

We can do this! Thank you so much for all of the pledges, sharing this around, tweeting about it, Facebooking it, etc. etc. There have been some clever ways of getting the word out, and it is all appreciated. As great as all of our efforts have been, unless we hit the $5,000 by April 7th, 2012, 5:03pm (CST) then this project will not get funded. If you have any suggestions or creative (read more here…)

I have been asked to share more about the story of the Overflow artwork.
My concept is a site specific sculptural installation that is interactive with the audience/viewer. I am interested in helping people understand the importance of their food source as well raising questions of GMO’s and chemicals that are introduced to our corn and seed supply.

I described part of this earlier under About This Project/ The Project, but when I get to New York, I will scrounge around and find wood pallets to take apart and use to build this barn structure. I like this idea of using reclaimed material to create this container. This “barn” is filled with an estimated 3,000 lbs of whole corn seed (read more here…)

I work a lot in materials and process and to me the understanding of where your food comes from and how it is treated is a very important and often overlooked element of life. My work is object based, but also very much conceptual. Most of my work is more subtle in communication than overt. I hope that this will be a beginning of looking further into food source/ process ideas and the questions about (read more here…)

Overflow conjures thoughts of farmland, barns and brimming silos. Seeds are important and are traded as a commodity. Cycles of life happen whether we understand the process or choose to bury our head. Our land, resources and life are laid out in front of us, one moment at a time. What will we do with what we are given?

Kickstarter Update #4: 27%! Creeping Up!

Wow, this is a wild ride and a ton of work. I really, truly appreciate all of your support! It is what is keeping me going right now. It’s a marathon…keep on running… Well it feels like it, but really 25 days is going to be over in a snap. So we are currently creeping up at 27% with 14 days remaining!

I am still hopeful that we can hit 40% by March 25th! The trajectory is a little low for that right now, so any additional help would be a great boost! (Read more here…)
